Chang’e-4 Lander to Launch in December
Andrew Jones, in GBTIMES:
Wu Weiren, a chief designer of the China Lunar Exploration Project (CLEP), told Chinese state media that following the arrival of a prerequisite communications relay satellite in a special orbit beyond the Moon, the focus is now on preparations for the landing portion of the pioneering Chang’e-4 lunar far side mission.
“Now our focus is to ensure that the Chang’e-4 lunar probe's successful launch and we initially scheduled the launch in December,” Wu told CCTV+.
That means the relay satellite is doing well at Earth-Moon L2. I’m really excited to watch this mission get up there.
